Moringa Crusted Wild Shrimp

Moringa is our favorite hero ingredient these days. It is a leaf that is native to the Philippines and Haiti. It is said to be twice as anti-inflammatory as turmeric. Rather than taking it in it’s supplement form we love to cook with it. It has a peppery taste to it similar to arugula.

1 pound large shrimp, cleaned and deveined
½ cup Moringa powder
1 teaspoon minced garlic
